These processes are generally used in industry due to the low cost, the high productivity and the possibility to produce complex shaped parts. To obtain a green compact with uniform properties, e.g. density distribution, and to produce parts that do not exceed a certain critical damage during ejection and handling up to firing are well-known challenges in the industry. Once trial-and-error methods to design new ceramic parts are costly and time-consuming, finite-element analysis can reduce the development time and the production cost. Finite-element analysis of powder pressing requires a precise constitutive model, whose the identification is a complex procedure. The Drucker-Prager Cap is a constitutive model included in the commercial finite-element software Abaqus, which is generally used to simulate powder pressing. Using the Drucker-Prager Cap model calibration from previous studies, this work demonstrates some case studies, in which finite element analysis can contribute to a better understanding of the pressing and its process variables.
